  • NEW: Blu-ray Dolby Digital Plus 7.1 decoding and bitstreaming support
  • NEW: LAV Audio will fallback to audio decoding if bitstreaming is not supported by the audio renderer/hardware
  • Fixed: DTS-HD HRA bitstreaming did not work properly with many A/V receivers
  • Fixed: TrueHD bitstreaming could result in drop-outs on high bitrate TrueHD+Atmos streams
